About Alan & Sheryl Broomhead

Originally from the UK, we have lived in Ontario since 1998. We love our place in the sun to relax and unwind, especially during our long, cold Canadian winters.

Alan & Sheryl Broomhead purchased this villa in 2004

Why Alan & Sheryl Broomhead chose Davenport

As soon as we saw this property it felt like our home away from home. Perfect location for all the theme parks, beaches on west and east Florida coasts, restaurants and Kennedy Space Center. Have enjoyed vacations with family and friends here and look forward to many to come in the future.

What makes this villa unique

Private pool and rear garden - so nice to unwind. Lots of space for everyone to enjoy.

Met baseline requirements, mostly.

  • 2 of 5

The good: pool was nice, the house was clean, well located, no bugs.

The bad: embedded in a neighborhood on the decline with lots of foreclosures. Missing essentials like toilet paper, laundry detergent, garbage bags, etc. The cheapest furnishings possible (the pool lounge chair immediately broke and was clearly poorly repaired previously). Generally had a cheap feel. Screens had lots of holes. Garage door opener didn't work (and there was even a note that it didn't work!!). It's a huge hassle (and less safe) to not have the garage door operational. Needs to be fixed immediately. The blinds were taped up in the bedroom. House next door abandoned and in disrepair.

Bottom line. It served it's purpose and it wasn't absolutely horrible, but I'll be researching more carefully before renting another house. Have spent similar money on condos in the area with much better results. I believe there is more predictability in the quality of the condos. Private pool is kinda fun though!

Lovely villa!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year in a row we have stayed at the palms villa and we certainly wouldn't hesitate to use the villa again! It's clean, comfortable and has a very well stocked kitchen. It's in a nice quiet area within easy reach of the parks with a large Walmart nearby also. A home from home that I hope we can get back to again in the near future! Thank you Alan and Sheryl for providing a great base for our family.

Wonderfully perfect

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time with a vacation rental we usually have stayed in hotels in the past. And after this wonderful experience I don't think I can ever stay at a hotel again . The house itself was perfect it truly felt like a home away from home. ALAN & CHERYL we're great to deal with, they were very quick with responses with questions that I had being that it was our first time doing a rental. The furniture was comfortable the beds were even more comfortable the pool was amazing my kids practically lived in it. And at night you truly can see the fireworks from Disney from the upstairs window. The house looked exactly like it did on the website which was nice I just gave you peace of mind. I would completely recommend this home to anybody that's traveling down to the area it's worth every penny we were about 15 minutes from Disney about a half hour from Universal but we were minutes from the grocery stores, restaurants, shopping stores. I mean it was perfectly located we were close enough to the parks without being in all the hustle and bustle which we loved. Thank you again Alan & Cheryl for everything.

Excellent place for our family of 5 to enjoy a week in Florida!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Florida in the winter to escape a week of cold weather. This property was excellent for our family of 5 and quickly became our home away from home. We did three days at Disney which was easy driving distance. We were able to easily take back roads and avoid traffic. Our kids (and the parents!) really enjoyed the large pool and privacy of the fenced area. If we were ever traveling to Florida again we would stay here again! The owners were excellent to deal with, good communication. Thank you!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

Great place to base yourself from to enjoy the parks, Disney approx. 20 mins, Universal approx. 30 mins.

If the parks aren't your thing, everything you could want and more is available in the property. The pool area is private and well furnished for sunbathing, sitting out for meals etc.

Shops ( Publix & Walmart), and restaurants are close by for essentials

Alan & Sheryl are great people to deal with, excellent and prompt responses with any questions or queries.

Would highly recommend this property.

The only problem was we had to come home!!

The Palms Villa is situated within a quiet, residential area, only 15 minutes drive to all the Disney theme parks. Seaworld and Universal Studios are approximately 30 mins drive away. Orlando International Airport is approx. 30 mins by car. Great beaches on both the east (Cocoa Beach) and west coasts (Clearwater) are approximately 1 hour drive along the I4. Why not take a boat tour from Clearwater to see the dolphins or experience Nascar racing at Daytona? There are also many terrific golf courses nearby for budding golfers. Only minutes away from Highway 192, there's always something to do, mini golf, shopping , and great restaurants.
